Have you been fantasizing about the perfect fence to add an interesting element to your yard? Are you considering addressing security concerns by putting up a fence? As with any renovation project, a new fence installation takes some careful consideration and planning. Let’s explore some considerations to take to heart and questions to ask before installing your new fence.
How to Make Your Fence Work
Consider your motivations for having a new fence installation in the first place. Having a fence for purely security or privacy purposes might make a difference when it comes to choosing what kind of material to use. If your fence is purely for security, you might want to consider sturdy and tall materials to keep people out like custom wood fences. Consider your surroundings, not only the colors around you but also your neighbor’s yards, and look at different options that may best fit your area. Aesthetic appeal can help in the future when it comes time to sell as well.
Know the Technicalities
Brush up on local building codes in your area to find out if your community restricts the use of certain materials, or restricts how you build your fence. If you are a part of a Home Owner’s Association make sure to read the small print to ensure you’re not breaking your contract. CC&R’s (covenant, conditions, and restrictions) are likely going to be in your HOA contract. In some cases, fences may need to be only a certain material, color, or height.
While most people think property lines are pretty obvious, this is a relatively common issue that arises when starting a new fence installation project. Do you know where your property ends? The answer may surprise you when you actually look into it. Looks and assumptions can lead you to encroachment on your neighbor’s property.
